James Taylor (pictured) has been appointed Stellantis director for B2B for the UK to provide a coordinated approach for large fleet customers across the group’s nine brands.
Adam Wood has also been appointed as Vauxhall’s marketing director with immediate effect.
Taylor, who was general sales and marketing director for Vauxhall, will now be working across the Stellantis portfolio, which includes Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep and Peugeot.
He will report directly to Paul Willcox and functionally to Alison Jones, who was appointed country manager UK and senior vice-president for Peugeot, Citroen, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Abarth, Jeep and Alfa Romeo in March.
Willcox, Stellantis senior vice president and managing director for Vauxhall, said: “James brings a wealth of sales experience to this new role. I want to thank him warmly for his success over 22 years at Vauxhall Motors and wish him well for further achievements with this new group position.”
Taylor said: “With a wide and diverse range of car and van models across our nine brands in the UK, including fully-electric and PHEV, I look forward to developing further our B2B sales to our customers bringing them efficiencies and benefits for their businesses.”
Wood was previously with Renault Group in the UK for 14 years, most recently as marketing director and will also report into Willcox.
Wood said: “With the recent announcements of Vauxhall selling only all-electric new cars and vans from 2028 and the Ellesmere Port plant set to be the group’s first all-electric manufacturing plant, I welcome the opportunity to shape the future of the Vauxhall brand.”
